Denby ODE Gravy Boat & Underplate 60's Modern Stoneware
Here is a stoneware gravy boat and underplate in Denby's ODE pattern. They are marked on the base: Denby Made in England. The stick handle has an air vent on the underside because it is hollow and any trapped air could explode in the kiln. The vent is white. This was part of the manufacturing process, not damage. The gravy boat measures about 3" high; 4-3/4" in diameter at the belly; and 7-1/2" wide at the handle. The underplate measures 6-5/8 in diameter.
They were purchased from an estate sale with a group of Ode dishes some of which we will be listing this week. They appear to have been well cared for or rarely used as they are in excellent condition, no damage and no repairs.
A little info: Ode was the creation of Glyn Colledge, potter, designer and head of the design department at Denby for many years. He retired in 1983 and died in 2000. Ode won a Gold Medal for Excellence at the California State Fair.
